The alias command works the same, but pre-install is different.  Therefore,

alias sound-slot-1 btaudio
alias sound-service-1-0 btaudio
install btaudio /sbin/modprobe snd-emu10k1; /sbin/modprobe 
--ignore-install btaudio

should work.  It says, before installing btaudio, run my command.  My 
command installs snd-emu10k1 and then installs btaudio, but to prevent 
an endless loop, when installing btaudio, I specify that modprobe should 
ignore any "install" commands in my modprobe.conf.  See man 
modprobe.conf for more info.

That would work, but your distro probably has a better solution.  For 
that, your best bet is to post on a forum for your distro--each distro 
does things differently.
